Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that Real Madrid will not give LaLiga champions Barcelona a guard of honour when the sides meet in El Clasico.

Elsewhere for Real, Casemiro is also recalled by Zidane after being benched for a midweek Champions League semi-final clash with Bayern Munich. "After the Club World Cup, I understand that for them it wasn't important to do the guard of honor". I'm not the one to decide if we do it.

Messi could move further ahead of Mohammed Salah in the race for European Golden Boot by scoring in tomorrow's game, while Ronaldo will also be looking to chip in a few goals and get Real Madrid back to winning ways against their arch-rivals.

"Some say it is as they were not in the competition, but that is not true".

"It was they who did not give it to us and we, with all respect, will not give it in return", he explained.

"We respect what Barca have done in winning the league, which for me is the most hard and nicest thing you can do. If they'd have given us one, we weren't going to break the tradition of doing so".

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said in December the "pasillo" had "lost its original essence", adding, "I would not do it and I would not want it to be done to me".

In Andres Iniesta's last Clasico, Luis Suarez gave the Catalan giants an early lead by turning in a terrific right-wing cross from Roberto, but the advantage did not last long as Madrid hit back in the 14th minute.

The Los Blancos now sit in third position on the La Liga league table with 71 points from 34 games. "We will wave to him, congratulate him and wish him the best of luck for the future".

Barcelona are on the verge of completing an unbeaten league campaign, but must overcome their biggest remaining obstacle at Camp Nou against the Los Blancos.

Barcelona's season has, however, had one blemish: they were dumped out of the Champions League quarterfinals by AS Roma, leaving Real Madrid and Liverpool to progress to the final and denying the Blaugrana a chance of a treble. Real Madrid defeated Paris Saint-Germain the Champions of Ligue 1 in a home and away affair in the Champions League second round, they also humiliated Juventus the potential Serie A victor on their home turf and they proceeded to Germany to thrash the Bundesliga Champions in the same manner.

Valverde said: "I have no doubt that he is speaking figuratively because we are all respectful of an opponent's players".
